HP Discover is for me a time to interview specialists on a series of subjects and I shared these with you in previous HP Discover related posts. But it is also a moment to be interviewed by others. This year the particular interest was around HP's CloudOS announcement. If you are interesting in understanding more, you may want to listen to Dana Gartner's podcast in which he interviews Paull Muller (@xthestreams) and myself on CloudOS. You may also want to look at SDRNews live coverage of HP Discover and the interview Andy McCaskey did of me during the event.
And here we are, Discover Las Vegas 2013 is over already. That has been quick. I'm on my way back home, but still wanted to give you some impressions of what had happened in Las Vegas. I'm talking about the service broker concept, about security in software defined datacenters and about how I experienced reviewing CloudOS. Interested in more.
Yesterday was the day of the cloud announcements. That made it a very busy day for me, with many briefings and several very interesting discussions. I also had some time to wander through the discover zone and would like to highlight two very interesting areas, stay with me.
In March 2011 we announced HP's converged cloud strategy. Since we have been busy adding offerings that help implement the strategy. We evolved CloudSystem, build HP Cloud and the Enterprise Cloud Services. Now we are addressing the consistency aspect of the strategy by announcing an architecture foundation that will power all our cloud offerings moving forward. We call it HP Cloud OS. Interested in understanding more about what it does?
I'm currently at HP Discover in Las Vegas. We finished day 1 of the event. Let me share with you some of the impressions I got going to the keynotes and walking the floor.
